Indonesia’s president is calling for the end of honeymoon killings and for a ban on the use of drones to hunt down the culprits.
“It is the duty of the President to do everything in his power to find and punish the perpetrators,” President Joko Widodo said in a speech in Jakarta on Sunday.
He said Indonesia will also use the law to prosecute people for spreading the virus, which has killed more than 200,000 people in the Southeast Asian country.
Indonesia’s police chief, Suharto, has accused the killer of committing a crime against humanity, a crime he says he cannot commit without taking action to arrest the culprit.
He has called for an international criminal tribunal to investigate and punish anyone who had a role in the virus’s spread.
Indias deadliest virus has killed at least 18,000, including hundreds of civilians, and left millions without health care and other basic services.
